At WeLoveHoneymoons.com we love to experiment with various apps to make our lives easier. Here, we are sharing with you some of the most practical and useful ones we found out there. The great news is that though most of the apps on our list are generally used to plan any type of trips, they are as excellent to help you plan your honeymoon.

 

Fund your Honeymoon: Honeyfund

Honeyfund is a free online tool which allows you to create an online wedding registry and/or to help you raise the money you need for your dream honeymoon. The premise is simple: create your registry and then just send your link to the guests. They choose a gift and send the money directly to you. For example, someone who wants to contribute more can pay towards the amount you need for a spa honeymoon, while someone with a lower budget can pay for that city tour you’ve set your eyes on. You can set it up as a traditional registry or as a crowdfunding project.

Keep track of your expenses: Expensify

 

An important part of honeymoon planning includes keeping track of your expenses and Expensify does a wonderful job at that. There are ways to automate adding the expenses, but you can also add them manually. The reports are easy to create and can be as detailed as you want them to be. An alternative is Google Spreadsheets, especially if you prefer to keep a simple list of expenses and don’t need fancy reports.

Find your Flights: Google Flights

 

Thanks to its recent updates, Google Flights is your best bet when it comes to searching for flights for your honeymoon. Not only does it tell you what dates are more affordable, but you can also set alerts to track the price changes. There are a lot of other search engines out there, each with their own strength (and weaknesses). If you are on iOS, Skyscanner is a good alternative.

Know the money: XE Currency

 

We don’t always think about exchange rates when we pay by card. However, sometimes we need the info on the fly and this app makes it super easy to find what you need. It loads the info onto the device so you can access it later without an internet connection.

Platform: web, Android, iOS

 

Know your accommodation: TripAdvisor

 

You don’t want to take chances with your stay, so once you chose an all-inclusive honeymoon, you may want to take a look at what people are saying about that hotel or villa. Yes, TripAdvisor is a bit controversial, but use this rule of thumb: if most of the reviews are positive, you can be rest assured that you’ll likely not run into any issues. If the majority of comments lean on the negative side, you may want to look for other options.

Know your destination: Wikipedia

 

There are a lot of Travel Guides out there, covering many things to do all over the world. We really like Wikipedia which not only suggests places to visit but also gives you an idea on how to best get to that particular destination.

Platform: web, Android, iOS

 

Understand the language: Google Translate

 

It may have its pretty funny fails, but Google Translate is useful in many cases and particularly if you choose a honeymoon in a city where English is not that common. The app helps you read signs, street names and helps you translate some common phrases.

Platform: web, Android, iOS

 

Keep it all in one place: TripIt

 

The free tool allows you to create trips and adds all the details you want to them; forward your flight itinerary to TripIt (or add it manually), add your accommodation reservations and activities. On one page you can see every detail related to your honeymoon.

Cost: Free

Platform: web, Android, iOS

 

Keep tabs on the weather: The Weather Channel

 

There’s nothing more annoying than not being prepared for the weather at the destination. While we cannot influence the weather, we can certainly find out what to expect. Plug in the location, run a search and then you can view the forecast about 3 weeks in advance. An alternative is Accuweather, which shows the forecast for up to three months in advance, but remember that the further in advance you check, the less accurate it will be. As a rule of thumb, check the forecast 3 days in advance of your honeymoon on the beach, for the duration of your stay, and then 3 days before you leave, as well as your destination back home.

Keep your notes tidy: Evernote

 

Keep all your notes in one place and super easy to access with Evernote. We rave about it, whether it’s for planning our trips or keeping an eye on our tasks. The best part of it is that once synced, you can access the content without internet access.
